36 Best Blog Niches That Actually Make Money

Are you in need of a few blog niche ideas for your next online business venture?

Blogging is one of the most effective forms of content marketing. It allows you to create a hub for content related to your niche that’s free from the algorithms built by social media platforms.

In this post, we’re breaking down the best blog niches that actually make money.

The best profitable blog niche ideas

To uncover the most profitable blog niches, we used Google Trends to pick and arrange our primary categories. This tool lets you view the level of interest a topic has had in Google Search over a specified period of time.

We’re using data from the last five years, and the level of interest is rated on a scale from 0 to 100.

We also used Google Keyword Planner to gauge the range of monthly searches each niche falls into as well as its cost-per-click (CPC).

CPC is the amount advertisers pay per click they receive when they choose to advertise their web pages to specific keywords in Google Ads.

While this doesn’t help you determine exactly how much you’ll make from each niche, it does tell you how much advertisers are willing to pay to appear in search results related to a particular niche.

The higher they’re willing to pay in Google Ads, the more they’ll be willing to pay for sponsored posts.

Here are the categories we chose:

  • Food
  • Beauty
  • Real estate
  • Marketing
  • Business
  • Health and wellness
  • Web design
  • Technology
  • Education
  • Gaming
  • Sales
  • Fashion

Note: The niches covered in this post are still fairly top-level. Use this as a rough guide but be sure to drill down and get even more specific. For example, a blog about starting a business is still fairly generic. So, you could choose to blog about a starting a specific type of business (e.g. SaaS).

Final thoughts

That concludes our post on the best blog niche ideas that actually make money, but be wary. Some of these blogging niches are still rather broad in the grand scheme of things.

Search for keywords related to each niche you’re interested in, and run the blogs you find through a domain authority tool like Ahrefs’ Website Authority Checker. That’ll give you an indicator of how competitive each niche is.

You can also run these keywords through a keyword research tool like SE Ranking to view their competitiveness.

Do a bit more research on these niches instead, and find a sub niche within them for your own blog. This sub niche will help you identify your ideal audience.

For example, a niche blog in the mobile gaming blogging niche could create a blog focused on Android games.
